1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5 to 6 limes)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (2 oranges)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeno pepper
(1 pepper seeded – leave seeds in if you like a little heat)
1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic (3 cloves)
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 boneless chicken breasts –
pounded to the same thickness all over
Combine the lime juice, orange juice, chili powder,
jalapeno pepper, garlic, salt,
and pepper in a large bowl.
Add the chicken breasts. Refrigerate overnight.
Heat a grill with coals and brush the rack with oil
to prevent the chicken from sticking.
Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade,
sprinkle well with salt and pepper,
and grill them skin-side down for about 5 minutes,
until nicely browned.
Turn the chicken and cook another 5 minutes.
Repeat this turning process every few minutes
until the chicken is done.
Remove from the grill to a plate.
Cover tightly and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
